democratic rights in this country. through september in six areas of london anyone marching like these people did last winter is liable to be arrested and fined or even imprisoned. the ban was prompted by plans by the anti muslim english defense league here in looted in february to march through tower hamlets the area with the highest concentration of muslims in the country but instead of banning one march on one day the home office banned all marches in six perez for an entire month activist richard seymour sees a wider motive. doesn't necessarily mean to say that a march isn't going to happen it just means that the police just have more powers and that's part of the wider problem but if you're restricted to a static demonstration the police are right who penned you in. a restroom very.
